Feinstein for CIA Director. If only that Kamala Harris could run for US Senate. She'd be a VAST improvement.
Much as I, too, would love to get a progressive into that seat, I don't think Feinstein is up to DCI. Remember that time she revealed that our drones were being flown out of Pakistan: http://bit.ly/tn0bEU
Napolitano for AG?
Gary Locke for Secretary of State.
Ray Mabus, current SECNAV, for Secretary of Energy.
Dave Fruedenthal for Interior.
Or, for that matter, Brian Schweitzer at Interior.
BILL Clinton for SecState!(Is this people we want, or random people who'll never get the job, but are fun to think about, because the latter is what I'm going with)
Barney Frank for Treasury
Bucephalus for Defense!More seriously, one thing I ask for is that Obama not eliminate promising candidates for elected office by putting them in the Cabinet. On the other hand, if he were to entice moderate Northeastern Republicans (by which I mean Susan Collins) to leave the Senate for the executive branch, that would be nice.
Dick Lugar would be pretty good as Secretary of State, actually.
